Abstract

'Diamondlike' carbon (DLC) is a hard carbon which is amorphous but has a large hydrogen content. These materials are of fundamental scientific interest, and have potential for optical coatings and other applications as well. Our experiments show that DLC films are composed of a mixture of carbon, hydrogen, and voids (no impurities), and are totally amorphous. These films adhere to numerous substrates including several used as infrared detectors. The absorption coefficient in the infrared is exceptionally low, and the films are not removed after exposure to several adverse chemical environments.
